Gregorio Martinez Jimenez obtained his B.S. degree in applied physics from the Physics and Mathematics Department, Universidad Autonoma de Puebla (BUAP). His final research project had the title “Characterization and Generation of Bessel-Gauss Beams in Free Space”. Afterwards he obtained his M.Sc at Oklahoma State University (OSU) in the Physics Department where he worked full time as a laboratory teaching assistant. He worked in the group of micro optical resonators where he developed a new technique to measure the cavity factor of a microsphere. The title of his thesis is “Determining the Cavity Factor and Coupling Regimen for a Micro- sphere by shift modulation”.
Today Gregorio is studding his PhD in Photonics at the University of Southampton as part of the Optoelectronics Research Center. This research center is the biggest in UK and one of the most important worldwide in optoelectronics and photonics. He is part of the research teams in non lineal and micro-structured materials and integrated optical devices. His research topic is the hybrid optical devices. He is pursuing to develop a new method to fabricate planar photonic devices for mass production using laser writing annealing and the integration of silicon and lithium niobate. He had participated in several national and international photonics conferences. Recently he presented a talk named “A poly-Si on LiNbO3 photonic platform” in the biggest conference of Europe, CLEO-Europe at Munich.
He has been an active member in the Optical Society of America (OSA) and the Mexican Society of Physics (SMF) since 2005.
